Ampersand Capital Partners
Founded in 1988, Ampersand is a middle-market private equity firm with more than $2 billion of assets under management dedicated to growth-oriented investments in the healthcare sector. With offices in Boston and Amsterdam, Ampersand leverages its unique blend of private equity and operating experience to build value and drive superior long-term performance alongside its portfolio company management teams. Ampersand has helped build numerous market-leading companies across each of the firm's core healthcare sectors. Consistent with our theme of increasing specialization as a source of differentiated performance, Ampersand’s Healthcare portfolio has been focused around several overlapping industry clusters where our multiple prior successes give us a competitive edge. Most of our portfolio companies have revenues between $10 and $100 million at the time of Ampersand’s investment. We typically invest between $10 and $50 million and years of operational expertise to drive each investment toward success. Ampersand’s team has decades of operating experience in Healthcare companies and over 80 years of shared private equity experience. Our unusual combination of skills, including deep industry, technical, financial, operating, and transactional capabilities, make us a preferred partner for entrepreneurs because we can contribute to their success on multiple levels. At our roots, we are company-builders, not investment managers. Our experience gives us empathy for our CEOs and helps us understand the challenges they face. This ability to identify, and contribute to, problem resolution makes us very effective in our companies.
